SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

"Cloud" is a common metaphor for an Internet accessible infrastructure, hiding most of the implementation and deployment details of the system from users. Cloud computing delivers IT-related capabilities as services over the Internet, allowing resources to be managed and accessed at an Internet scale. Cloud computing has been envisaged to be one of the main stream powering technologies of future IT systems.

The First International Workshop on Cloud Computing Interoperability and Services focuses on techniques, experiences and lessons learned for interoperable services in the cloud. This workshop aims at providing a forum to bring together researchers for sharing and exchanging cloud computing related research, technologies, experience, and lessons for building clouds of interoperability and coordination capabilities and services. The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

PAPER SUBMISSIONS

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Cloud Computing. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged an additional fee. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the Workshop paper submission site at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=intercloud2010. Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be available at the time of the meeting.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the HPCS conference and present the paper in the workshop. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance. Note that InterCloud does not require anonymized submissions.

All accepted papers will be published as ISBN proceedings by the IEEE and will be available online through IEEE Digital Library (EI indexing).
